If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 13:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

On its self-titled debut, this Vancouver "garage soul" band does a faithful, playful recreation of 1960s girl-group sounds, filtered through proudly grimy production.

this is like the ur-pitchfork band description

I think, perhaps, that this article gives the impression, or maybe confirms the suspicion, that Pitchfork pays, not by the word, but by the, comma

is it just me or is it a a bit weird that pfork runs a long review of the new amadou & mariam album (one that longs for more sounds of their homeland) without the slightest mention of the military coup currently taking place in mali?

This is a good piece addressing the phenomenon of Western media ignoring the political realities of Mali in their reporting on Malian musicians (in this case, Tinariwen):

thinking maybe this site deserves its own thread, Pitchfork hasn't been on this path since like 2004

[The lights slowly come back up on 31, still tapping on his laptop. As the conversation between 26 and Dom fades to murmurs, Christopher’s Mom, aka HNIC (HEAD NAGGER IN CHARGE), walks in.]

nah its funny

Mr. Que, Thursday, 31 May 2012 16:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

i skimmed it, but there was also the fleet foxes dude who got offended because of a generally positive pfork review a few weeks ago, because it misused some music terms and dared to be slightly critical. actually that was pretty hilarious.

I don't mind these when they are funny, as this one is.

As for the cover, well, there’s a penguin on it you stupid cunt.

Also, I did kinda like him calling Pitchfork on the "corporate" name-calling thing.

i always enjoy reading Ian Cohen takedowns of bands i've never heard, and that Future Of The Left review was the rare one that actually made me want to hear the band's (other) records because he sold their merits pretty convincingly. and then i tried to read the FOTL guy's pointless nitpicking response and lost the desire to listen to them again.

some dude, Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

also he admits it's a dumb idea in the first sentence

bands stay getting butthurt

fapper don (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

Many things occurred to me on reading your review of the new future of the left record 'the plot against common sense' and I would like to take this opportunity to debate with you some of the points you raise in the piece, although of course by 'debate' I mean 'shut up and listen to me'.

^^this kind of thing doesn't come off as butthurt so much as fucking hilarious

Mr. Que, Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah maybe -- tbf i haven't read it yet

fapper don (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

the fleet foxes dude thing was remarkable in its butthurtedness

fapper don (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

falkous' whole thing is being perpetually outraged in hilarious fashion so this is more "in character" than "butthurt"

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

on the other hand, i am a huge FOTL fan and could not make it through that whole thing

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

the fact that the whole thing kind of winds down with "wahhh, you like my old band more than my current band" makes it all seem pretty butthurt imo

some dude, Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

let's parse out the many degrees and shades of butthurtedness

Mr. Que, Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

i believe there are 50 shades

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

hehe

fapper don (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 31 May 2012 17:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

i love mcclusky, haven't heard much FOTL, but i laughed out a lot when i read the piece. i wasn't rolling on the floor laughing but it was laughing nevertheless
